CODE OF CONDUCT

It is close enough to Veteran’s Day, I can still post the Code of Conduct I started working on a couple of years ago.  It is based on the Code of Conduct I had to memorize as a midshipman at the Naval Academy, adapted to the life of a Christian.

It has two versions.  The first is for husbands and fathers:

Code of Conduct

Article II am an Christian husband and father, fighting in the forces which guard my family and our way of life.  I give my life to their defense.

 Article II: I will never surrender.  As my family leader, I will never surrender the members of my family while they still have the means to resist.

 Article IIIIf the enemy attempts to capture me, I will continue to resist by all means available.  I will make every effort to aid others to escape his grasp.  I will not compromise nor make any agreement with the lies of the enemy.

 Article IVIf a family member becomes a prisoner of the enemy, I will keep faith with him or her.  I will give not take part in any action which might be harmful to my family.  Since I am senior, I will take command.  I will obey God and will back Him up in every way.

 Article VWhen questioned about my faith, I am required to give a ready answer for the hope that lies within me.  I will answer further questions to the utmost of my ability.  I will make no oral or written statements disloyal to my God and family or harmful to the faith.

 Article VII will never forget that I am a Christian husband and father, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made me free.  I will trust in my God and in the saving blood of His Son, Jesus Christ.

The second is for singles:

Article II am an Christian warrior, fighting in the forces which guard my faith and our way of life.  I give my life to their defense.

 Article III will never surrender.  If I am a leader, I will never surrender the brothers and sisters under my care while we still have the means to resist.

 Article IIIIf the enemy attempts to capture me, I will continue to resist by all means available.  I will make every effort to aid others to escape his grasp.  I will not compromise nor make any agreement with the lies of the enemy.

 Article IV: If a fellow Christian becomes a prisoner of the enemy, I will keep faith with him or her.  I will give not take part in any action which might be harmful to the Church.  If I am the most mature Christian, I will take command.  I will obey God and will back Him up in every way.

 Article VWhen questioned about my faith, I am required to give a ready answer for the hope that lies within me.  I will answer further questions to the utmost of my ability.  I will make no oral or written statements disloyal to my God or harmful to the faith.

 Article VII will never forget that I am a Christian warrior, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made me free.  I will trust in my God and in the saving blood of His Son, Jesus Christ.
